Happy Tuesday? I hope you had a good Monday and are ready for today. Have a great one 🙂
Monday morning was surprising easy to wake up and get out of bed. I feel like Mondays are hit or miss with ease of getting out of bed, anyone else? Once I was ready for work, I cut myself a square of baked oatmeal and put it in the oven to heat up for a few minutes. Since I’m so picky, I was pretty nervous to eat it. My nerves were unnecessary because it was delicious! I had it with a glass of milk while I watched the news.
For lunch I got back to reading my newest book, “Sanctum” by Madeline Roux which is the second book in the Asylum series. I didn’t know it was a series until I read the first book a few months ago. It’s got a slightly creepy feel to it since it uses real pictures from old carnivals. Work was going well until people came to test our fire alarms 😐 I totally understand that these need to be tested for safety but do they have to do it while we’re there? My boss made an announcement to everyone that it was happening but I still jumped a little every time it went off!
The entire day was raining on and off so I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get my run in. I’m used to running in rain but if it’s really pouring or thundering/lightening I won’t go. Safety first, right?! It was misting on my drive home but by the time I changed and was heading out the door the sun was out and shining. So weird! The humidity was terrible you guys. I don’t know the exact amount but based on my braid’s frizziness and how it felt, I think the humidity was about 132% 😉 I got my tempo run done though. 5.5 miles including a warm up and cool down.
After my workout, I quickly showered and got into pajamas. I got comfy on the couch and continued to do research. For Alex’s birthday and our anniversary, I booked us tickets to fly to Knoxville, Tennessee to see his best friend. We are both so excited! I know his friend will have ideas for things to do but I like doing research too. That’s my Type A personality coming out. If you have ever been there (or know someone who has) please tell me any recommendations you have! I would love to hear them 🙂
When Alex texted me saying he was on the train, I chopped up some potatoes and broccoli and put them in the oven to roast. Before I left for work, I put some frozen chicken breasts and barbecue sauce into the crock pot for an easy dinner. I shredded the chicken once the veggies were in the oven so that the sauce could coat all of the pieces. Instead of a bun, I cut myself a few pieces of the bread I made to enjoy with everything. Dinner was delicious and filling!
We cleaned up and then finished the first part of the Frank Sinatra documentary before heading to bed. It wasn’t even 9:30 so it was clear Alex and I were both exhausted from the day.
Question of the day: Have you ever had baked oatmeal? Now I want to look into more recipes!
